Dominated by vast mountain ranges and fringed by Unesco-protected fjords, Norway certainly knows how to lay on the natural drama. Only 10 per cent of the country has been cultivated and urbanised – the rest is still gloriously wild. In winter, the aurora livens up those long, dark nights with spectacular light displays and the snow-covered uplands become playgrounds for cross-country skiers and sledgers. In summer, the northern fjords sparkle beneath the midnight sun. But Norway’s natural beauty transcends the seasons. From island-hopping around the coastline where Roald Dahl spent his childhood holidays to spotting polar bears in Arctic Svalbard, the country is open for adventure all year round.
